We are a group of 5 couples who have travelled together a few times already and wanted to have a taste of the Greek islands, it was perfect!! A beautiful cabin with balcony boasts a great view when approaching ports. A 10 day cruise and only 2 at sea. The food was 5 star in the main dining room and service over and beyond. A special thank you to the staff: Froelan(Head Server) Magdalena, Richard (sommelier) and Jocelyn (drinks). You made our experience memorable! Let's not forget our concierge Bertollino and Head MaitreD' Marko. This is my third cruise, first Carnaval Caribbean, MSC Mediterranean and last Celebrity Greek Isles. Celebrity by far the best! Embarking was a breeze and so was disembarking at the different isles even with tenders. Shore excursions for me are overrated, we mostly enjoyed walking around the towns and enjoying the local flavours of food and wine. Read Less

This was a wonderful vacation for us, one of the best, and it's difficult to separate the boat from the ports we visited. This was our first time to this part of the world and now we can scratch Pompeii, the Parthenon, and the Greek isles off our bucket list. As to the boat, there was much to like and very little to take issue with. As big as it is, we rarely felt the presence of so many people. There were times when the elevators were impossible but that's about it. We talked to several people that, like us, watched empty cars fly right past them. The ship really needs to reprogram them. The food was good in the main dining room, in the cafeteria there were a few exceptions. The clam chowder had no clams, the bean soup no beans. Either the soup was pisspoor or the guy serving it up didn't know all the substance was at the bottom. And every pot of scrambled eggs contained soggy, undercooked eggs. We were told they put cream in them. You would think with several egg stations around they'd at least cook one properly. We ended up getting our eggs at the omelet station where they made them to order. We ate in one specialty restaurant, the Tuscan. While it was good it wasn't $100 better than the main dining. room. At best it was a slight upgrade so save your money. With the exception of a couple of obviously new staff, all Celebrity employees were excellent. You won't find a better room attendant than Leslie, or better bartenders than the group in the Ensemble. Onboard entertainment was excellent about the ship.. The theater was hit or miss. Their in house shows were strange, We watched very talented people singing lousy songs or songs they had no business trying to sing. When a high pitched soprano tries to sing a baritone song, all you can do is scratch your head in confusion. They had an excellent trio perform Motown, a replacement fill on the last night did a wonderful job and a British comedian (Jon Courtenoy) I wanted to slug. Just a day after the Manchester massacre this jackass gets up there and tells Trump jokes. How insensitive, classless, and boorish can anyone be? If his own children were splattered all over the city of Manchester I wonder if he would have thought it was funny? My prayers are with Manchester and I pray Trump's message to the Muslim world will be answered. Getting on and off the boat was a breeze at all ports. All in all a very nice boat and an excellent choice for a vacation. Read Less

We chose Celebrity because their date and destination worked for us. It turned out we enjoyed all the port of calls. The ship was fantastic and the crew were all nice. The food was good too. I thought all the meals they were going to serve were coming from the US. Actually, they served local meals when we were in Italy, Turkey and Greece. The entertainment was fantastic. We didn't have any bad experience with the crew. We had enough time to explore each place. We did the tours in each port of call by ourselves. We did Santorini on our own. Mykonos was close to the port and so was Rhodes. In Turkey, we took a tour to Ephesus using their local guide. We didn't use any of Celebrity's tour excursions because they were expensive. I researched the sites for each port by using Rick Steves' books which were very helpful. I also got tips from Trip Advisor and Cruise Critic. It was a fantastic cruise, that's why we are going on another cruise soon. This time with Princess. Read Less

This cruise was recommended to us by a cruise specialist and it was fantastic, everything about it was superb I can not think of one bad point to make we had a fantastic time and did not want it to end all the staff where amazing and the entertainment was the best. We have cruised before and this was the first time with Celebrity and we can't wait to book our next trip. The disembarkation could not have gone any better I can not believe how little time it took us to get on board as past experience this can normally take several hours so this was a great start to our holiday. I did think that the entertainment and activities on board catered for everyone and they certainly had everybody in a party mood. We did take advantage of the drink's package which was on offer and overall I thought this Cruise was great value for money. Read Less

Unhappy with the drinks package that came with our cruise (Classic), there was no option to buy a drink above the price limit imposed per drink without paying full price for it. However if you have a Premium drinks package then you can pay the difference - bizarre! Had chosen Select Dining, turned out to be a fiasco which sent us to Guest Relations to have this removed because despite having a table reserved for a certain time we still encountered a queue each time we went to dinner. As mentioned by other travelers the entertainment was somewhat lacking, out of 10 nights the theatre produced a singing act 8 times! Other entertainment apart from the band was rather disappointing, the highlight of the evenings appeared to be finding ways to part you from your money via various offers in the minimal shops on board. The shows in Celebrity Central were very entertaining, there should be more of these. We did enjoy the silent discos and enjoyed dancing to DJ Aria. Lots of photo opportunities as we arrived at different ports but found the price of the pictures to be vastly inflated $15-25 per photo! The general staff on board were fabulous and the food was exceptional in Ocean View and Opus, don't know why Celebrity push the 'specialist' restaurants (and they were being pushed quite hard on this cruise). For us being British the biggest bugbear of our holiday was the 18% gratuity that racked up every day on your stateroom, by the end of our cruise we had accrued a bill of $270! To us service is something that should be rewarded as a result of a good experience. Maybe Celebrity should consider including gratuities in the price of a cruise so that deserving staff can make their own tips based on their hard work and customer service.and yet still be paid a basic wage. For us personally Celebrity will not be our choice of cruise company in the future. Read Less

We choose this cruise because after much research it came up as an exceptional choice. We wanted to leisurely cruise, with a quality liner, with all the trimmings. The destinations were important also, as we had never travelled to this area. The ship, the service, the activities, the exquisite food, the logistical organisation, and the facilities were absolutely outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. We definitely would quite easily do it again, and we definitely recommend this particular cruise/liner to our family and friends. The whole cruise was a delightful adventure. There were some minor delays, getting on and off the ship, and waiting to speak to someone at the service desk, but this was acceptable, as it was meticulously organised. There were many areas on the ship to get away to a quiet atmosphere, and that was really refreshing, The communication on the ship, before after and during was fantastic. Read Less
